About Hilary Kole
Long a beloved presence in the NYC jazz scene and world-renowned as a multi-faceted concert hall and symphony performer, Hilary Kole made her professional career debut at the legendary Rainbow Room as the youngest singer ever to grace that stage. Hilary spent five summers at The Walden School Young Musicians Program, and went on to study composition at the Manhattan School of Music. In addition to performing at famed Manhattan venues like Town Hall, Birdland, Blue Note, Iridium, 54 Below, Jazz at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall (with Michael Feinstein and The New York Pops), she made her concert-hall debut at Lincoln Center as part of the “American Songbook Series.” Globally, she has since headlined at the Umbria Jazz Festival, the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Nairn Jazz Festival, and the Cotton Club and Blue Note in Japan.
